Ivor Novello Nominated Composer Walter Mair Scores Killzone: Mercenary

Ivor Novello nominated and Telly award winning composer Walter Mair scores Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's (SCEE) highly acclaimed PS Vita title, Killzone: Mercenary, lauded by critics as "setting a new bar of quality for FPS on handheld" and "one of the better first-person shooters."

Walter Mair's music for the latest installment in the series reflects a new story set in the Killzone universe and captures the emotional drama, fear and undying courage of war. The official soundtrack is available for digital download via Sony Entertainment Network.

Classically trained in Vienna, Walter Mair has previously created dramatic original scores for feature films such as The List, Seamonsters and Alone In The Dark as well as commercials for BMW and Mercedes-Benz. His previous video game scores include the Ivor Novello nominated Empire: Total War and Viking: Battle For Asgard.

Mair's diverse repertoire ranges from epic full orchestral scores recorded with 80-piece choirs to intimate, small ensembles and hybrid electronic scores featuring solo instruments and found sounds. To create unique sounds for each score, Mair employs his extensive collection of analog digital synths and effect processors, blending live orchestral arrangements with experimental post-recording techniques.

Developed by Guerilla Games Cambridge, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, Killzone: Mercenary for PS Vita-a new first-person shooter in the acclaimed Killzone series-throws players into a deadly firefight as part of a ruthless Mercenary faction, one taking on paid contracts from not only the dangerous ISA but the vicious Helghast as well. As the first handheld entry in the series to retain the console titles' first-person shooter gameplay, Mercenary combines an epic single-player campaign with a substantial multiplayer offering.
